Will the Romney Campaign Demand Release of the Obama-Khalidi Video?
American Thinker ^ | August 23, 2012 | Edward Olshaker

Posted on 08/23/2012 4:13:21 AM PDT by Flotsam_Jetsome

Obama's fundraising off Romney's "radical" associations is an example of either chutzpah he will get away with or hubris that will come back to haunt him by inviting scrutiny of Obama's closeness with terrorists who appear with him in the suppressed Los Angeles Times video of a 2003 anti-Israel gathering -- former PLO operative Rashid Khalidi (who dedicated a book to Palestinian murderer Yasser Arafat), Bill Ayers (who dedicated a book to Palestinian murderer Sirhan Sirhan), and Bernardine Dohrn..

The guest list also included Ali Abunimah, a close Obama ally who founded the Electronic Intifada website in 2001 (surely Obama realized that the word "intifada" is synonymous with suicide bombings) and the Sanabel debka troupe.  Columnist Debbie Schlussel reported that she witnessed a performance of this Palestinian children's dance group that included "simulating beheadings and stomping on American, Israeli, and British flags."  (Did they let the children use real swords when they acted out the beheadings?  Maybe we'll find out when this comes up in the debates.)

What kind of presidential candidate participates in such an event?  One who is "out of touch with most Americans' values"  and "fully embraced extremism" -- phrases the Obama team uses to describe Paul Ryan and the Tea Party, while the president's own indoctrination by terrorists goes unmentioned.  The disturbing unspoken truth is that if Romney relentlessly attacked Santorum and Gingrich on their worst vulnerabilities yet declines to do the same to Obama, he is succumbing to racial bullying, just as John McCain and even the Clintons did on their way to defeat.

Sadly, Mr. Romney’s history is DEFENDING Obama.
From TARP to his missing documents.

Do not expect the DNC’s choice, RINO Romney to change.

Perhaps some of the conservative PACS can run with this and let Romney stay above the fray.

That is the best part of a Conservative PAC. Since they don’t officially speak for any candidate, they can also hold any candidate accountable.

Fire at will boys! I can see the whites of their eyes on both flanks!

There are a million items that the GOP politicos could address but these tools will continue to demonize Akin and Ron Paul before going after the criminals from Chicago....bunch of cowards!

"That is the best part of a Conservative PAC. Since they don’t officially speak for any candidate, they can also hold any candidate accountable."

From the article:

"And then, four months ago, the LA Times cavalierly publicized photos of a few rogue U..S troops posing with body parts of dead Afghan suicide bombers.  Despite pleas by the U.S. military and others about the potentially deadly consequences, the newspaper stood by its decision, as editor Davan Maharaj insisted, "At the end of the day, our job is to publish information that our readers need to make informed decisions."

"That's truly a priceless quote for the Romney campaign to cite when asking why a newspaper would release photos endangering U.S. troops' lives yet suppress a video that endangers a favored politician's career."

This stuff is ready-made. Use it!!!

No. Romney is an Arabist and would not want to do anything to discomfit Arabs or Moslems. He has a hard enough time saying unpleasant things about the kenyan, but I guess that is redundant.

This would be the most exciting election, not to mention that it IS the most important election in our lifetime.. if we only had a candidate! Newt Gingrich would have obama against the ropes already. He would be demanding obama to explain his connections with terrorist bombers, radical islamists, communist mentors, etc. It would be such an easy, fun campaign. Can you imagine obama asking Newt for his tax returns!! Newt would laugh in his face, while demanding obama’s papers!!
What we have is another Bob Dole, he didn’t want to win either. Ever since Reagan, our candidates have been consistently watered down, until the presumptive nominee for 2012 for the GOP looks pretty much like the nominee for the party of the donkey.

Newt was attacked here on FR for that sofa commercial with Nancy Pelosi.

Rick Santorum was attacked for endorsing Specter.

Rick Perry was attacked for his Texas drawl.

And on and on and on it went.

Romney is the nominee and, as per usual, the FR attack dogs (the same group of posters) go from thread to thread complaining that Romney is the candidate.

As I have stated before. If you’re not happy with Romney, look in the mirror for the reason why you have him. It’s not any sinister plot, YOU didn’t work hard enough for your candidate. I don’t get it. Some of you claim to be SO vocal and SO outspoken and SO invovled, yet....the only thing you can seem to do is complain on the internet that Romney is the nominee, your energy should have been focused on that mythical perfect conservative. In the case of some of you who just don’t want any candidate, you just want to complain about ANY republican candidate, carry on.

The rest of us will have their backs.

Do you really think a Rove-run PAC will have the stones to find and play such a video? Can it be leaked for a viral-go round only to be taken down by the Google-YouTube corporate protectors of The Won? Is Michelle Malkin a better bet to spread the word?

If Romney doesn’t get some guts and start exposing this pos, we will lose.

LOVE THIS!!! THANKS FOR THIS!!

Romney doesn’t have the cojones to do it. But will he ask Ryan to do it for him?

Romeny should be peeved enough at the cries that he is hiding something to somehow mention (even under a fake cough will do, Willard!) the elephants, pianos, trains, Obama’s media sleight of hand tries to make disappear before the audience.

>"It’s not any sinister plot,"

Then what do you call it when the RNC hands it to ONE candidate from the start?

How many primaries did Ron Paul win and yet the RNC claimed victory for Mitt?

How many states was Newt locked out of by the RNC?


It might not have been a "sinister" plot, but it was a plot none the less.

Our only hope is the Indonesian sucks so bad no one will vote for him.

"The best Obama exposure site on the net:"

The Obama File was one of the first places I bookmarked when I began my intellectual journey as a Constitutionalist. It's an amazing resource and I've referred people (away from FR) to it many times.

What's your take on this film?

You are claiming that the good conservatives of FR are being influenced by paid operatives? Really? All of the attacks were done by the paid operatives? Nobody stepped in to tell the paid operatives to stop?

Really? Paid operatives?

Take a deep breath and count to 3.
Everything is still going your way..nothing has changed. Relax!
But, if it goes to a brokered convention...and Romney gets dumped..you’ve got to be as nice and calm as I am. Deal? :)

Of course the American voters should know about this.
I don’t think Romney has the guts to expose him.
If he doesn’t start doing it, I think we will lose.

Tell ya what.

If it goes to a brokered convention and the candidate gets dumped, I’ll root for the Dallas Cryboys for an entire football season over my beloved Steelers.

Wouldn’t it just be easier for you to get on board trying to defeat Obama with the candidate receiving the nomination?

Or, would that ruin the fun you and others have trying to convince others to not vote for him?

I saw this phrase bandied about on another thread and thought it MIGHT be an answer to the EVIDENCE that had been presented in reply #11.

We know that such folks DO exist; but how can ya PROVE it?
